SOUTH BEND, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- It was one month ago that a small jet crashed into three homes in South Bend, Indiana.

The accident killed two crew members and left three others injured. Now officials have released audio recordings of the conversations that took place between the airport tower and the plane's crew in the moments leading up to the crash.

Pilot: We lost all power and we have no hydraulics…

Tower: We’ll have equipment standing by…is your craft controllable?

Pilot: Barely controllable.

NTSB officials are still investigating the crash but in a preliminary report released this month, they stated the plane crashed after experiencing technical issues.
